The Innovation Office at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) is seeking a translational champion—someone to help accelerate getting exciting discoveries to patients. This Director of the Accelerator will report to the SVP, Chief Innovation Officer, and serve as a key member of the Belfer Office for Dana-Farber Innovations (BODFI / Innovation Office) supporting DFCI’s Pipeline Accelerator. The Chief Innovation Officer has recently reorganized the Innovation Office with the vision of creating a relationship-focused and creative partnering team. The goal of this newly designed team is to make DFCI research, technology, and clinical tools increasingly more accessible outside of Dana-Farber through swift and effective development and commercialization to improve the lives of patients.
Dana-Farber leadership and the Innovation Office are expanding existing accelerator programming and funding sources to proactively engage our faculty as well as strategically manage, de-risk, and promote DFCI’s translational research portfolio. We are looking for someone who is highly creative, energetic, scientifically adept and entrepreneurial and will bring a sense of urgency to this role. We truly believe that we can accelerate the time it takes for breakthrough science to get to patients and with the right approach to translational research and accelerator funding, we can have an even bigger impact.
